As a Chemistry major at RWU, you can pursue an American Chemical Society-certified B.S. degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry or Environmental Chemistry. B.A. degrees are also an option, and are easily incorporated as a second major, when combined with another major in science. No matter which you choose, you’ll develop the laboratory, critical thinking and research skills to succeed in graduate school, medical school or a career in chemistry. Students can collaborate with faculty on research as early as their first year, presenting their research at chemistry meetings across the U.S.
